I will always have time for a particular brand of fun, bouncy, inoffensive, twee, light and breezy indie pop, especially when female vocals are involved (see Club 8, The Cardigans and many, many more). I’d go so far as to say that everyone should have at least a little time for it - what’s the worst that can happen?

Camera Obscura are my current darlings of this scene, and Let’s Get Out of This Country was the album that first brought them to my attention: all 60s girl group, Wall of Sound and moist-eyed references to mythical past times (Country Mile, ‘Let’s Get Out of This Country’) and heroes (‘Lloyd, I’m Ready to be Heartbroken’, Dory Previn), it’s a tender treasure.
